Customizable Holiday Ornaments
This download includes various ornaments for your tree. These can be customized with names, years or initials. I'll give you some tips on how to add those. You may also need to modify these for your material thickness.
I've included some ornaments with space for a name, year or initials. In my example I am using the font Montserrat Extra Bold. You can download this font from free from Google Fonts. You may use any font you like, you'll just want a thick font to ensure you are within the minimum hole size requirements. You'll want to keep shapes and holes to 1.5x material thickness.
To add a name, simply type the name and size it to fit on your ornament. Once it's to the size you want, convert your font to vector. You'll then need to create bridges to the holes in your letters so you don't lose them.
Once you have your text as vector, and the appropriate bridges created, you'll select both your text and the shape and exclude your text from the ornament.
